Me as DJ? Getting in at Leith FM

I went along to a volunteer night at Leith FM last night and it's all very exciting. I have the great pleasure of working in my day job with two of Leith FM's best DJs and presenters, Claton P (Soul Stream, Saturday nights 8-10) and Ralph MacGillivray (Music Routes, Sunday afternoons 2-4) and it was fantastic to see behind the scenes at the station and meet lots of people, including Momo, the incredibly enthusiastic and knowledgeable station manager.

Leith FM has a constant stream of notes of interest from people to volunteer at the station and last night was an opportunity for volunteers to tell Leith FM what their interests are, what they can offer the station and to be buddied up with a presenter to learn the ropes. I was glad to see how encouraging everyone at the station is to get volunteers involved and even get people broadcasting in a pretty short time.

I've been buddied with Clayton P to pitch in during his Soul Stream programme and I'm hoping I can bring something different to his weekly show by sneaking in some current rap, hip hop and general good time Saturday night tunes. I'm not sure when I'll be starting but I'll keep you up to date here.

Leith FM is an amazing local radio station with an enormous work force of volunteers helping from everything from admin to presenting shows. I'm really proud to be welcomed in there and here's hoping I can learn how to work that board with all the dials and buttons.

  1. Hi Leah, thank you for your generous comments. I’m glad that you found the experience worth while and hope that you and all the other new volunteers make Leith FM your home from home…
